The solitary signpost to a heritage location
This Shantadurga temple on the outskirts of Sancaole is one of the few spectacular and sanctified monuments of the tiny village.
The scenic place seems to be going through an identity crisis – a neither rural, nor urban settlement characterized by speeding cars, rattling motorbikes and idling locals.
This is the Kosambi residence as the locals claimed it to be, a place that has now been donated to a social organization. There was no one around to validate facts for us.
Sadly, this historic location of global significance is adorned with such unsavoury landmarks.
It would be great if the Government of India sets up a Kosambi museum, library or at least a memorial in Sancaole to complement the research chairs and seminars constituted in Kosambis’ honour.
